Budapest Danube River Dinner Cruise

Budapest Szechenyi Chain Bridge

Your evening will begin at Danube Palace in the center of Budapest. From there, a guide will show you the way to the river where your dinner cruise will be waiting for you.

Many of Budapest’s notable sights are showcased along the river, and you’ll have a front-row seat to admire the glowing Buda Castle and the Freedom Monument. You’ll also pass the Gellért Baths, where Hungarians and visitors alike come to swim and relax, as well as the Chain Bridge, a suspension bridge that spans the river and connects Buda and Pest.

We took the tour on our 1st day. The sights were beautiful, and as a practical matter, it helped us shortlist the places we wanted to see up close. Totally worth it!
A tip for your wallet: You can go in with the no food option, and then purchase stuff a la carte while on the cruise.

I had a greTvtime on this trip. I'm a solo traveller and it's my second time to fabulous Budapest and first trip on the Danube cruise. I was sat at a table with a mix of Italians, Americans and Spanish and introduced myself to ask if anyone speaks English.....of course they do! We had a good ole natter and lovely views on the trip. Unfortunately the complimentary drink think only applied to couples because I wasn't offered nor was I provided when asked for a drink. The couple next to me gave me a glass of theirs which was good if them. Also the canapés were not my cup of tea so I didn't partake. I went to get food from the buffet but it had all been taken and there was no refills so I can't comment on the food or drink but the company at the table and of course Budapest itself was brill.

This tour was great, from the moment we reached the departure location and Kristian helped us get everything in order since we bought an additional ticket last minute. He was very helpful and even made sure we were enjoying ourselves during the cruise thanks Kristian!. The food was great and the music was nice. A great introduction to Budapest on your first night.

Brilliant time in Budapest and river cruise was very enjoyable. The music could have been a little more cheerful and fast for a birthday celebration but the musicians were excellent and the food was delicious.
Thanks to everyone who made it a memorable birthday.

I would recommend that everyone does this trip. I was very pleasantly surprised that it wasn't at all manic or touristy just calm and orderly as such events should be! Wells done!

Lovely experience to see the sights on both sides, but was generally a nice way to have an evening meal. The three gentlemen playing music was a fun experience also. It and #39;s somethings i and #39;d advise to do.
